Nice dining place. We tried to sit outside, but it was too windy. The waiter did not mind us changing to a table inside. As most places in Cartagena/San Andres, there is a small list of wines. Good food and the waiter gave us good tips on places to visit.

After having ordered dinner for 4 people and one bottle of wine some time passed and we were served with our dishes. Given that our first bottle of wine was about to end, we decided to order a 2nd bottle of wine ... What a MISTAKE. The waiter showed how disappointment he felt about our decision, looked at his watch... More

Nice little place right on the water ( we were tossing bread in the water from our table.) one of our tour guides recommended Nikos for fresh, delicious, reasonably priced seafood. The food was fresh and delicious but hardly reasonably priced. The lobster was a little overpriced for the island. ( there are other places with great lobster on the... More

A cost-benefit restaurant, with variegated menu options. The best fresh coconut lemonade that I had opportunity to drink in the island.

This place is right on the water. There were crabs that I could have reached out and touched. There are linen table cloths and napkins but this is not what I would call a fancy place. Very bright with a million dollar view. Not air conditioned but good ocean breeze so not necessary. Everything was clean and tidy. There were... More

Each time that I visit San Andres Island, I visit Nikos Restaurant. The crab fried rice is amazing as is the fish with the lemon sauce. I think it is a family owned restaurant so you get really good customer service in a very family friendly manner :-)

Few people there when I visited. Had a wonderful lobster dinner, and amazing coconut rice (uses Coca Cola; very different than Thai coconut rice), and superb coconut pie. Friendly waiter.

Had dinner here and the service was really poor. The quality of the food was ok but nothing compared to other places on the island.

Went there with my couple, the attention was good but the food was regular, not even near as tasty as the one from the fisherman's place or the grog on san Luis. The amount of shrimp was really scarce compared to the other places around the island, specially for the price they charge. This place is really a shame for... More

My wife and I went there two nights ago. It is a pleasant place with a great ambience and friendly staff. The waiter suggested their best lobster, the one in garlic sauce... Then you realize this is probably the only place in the world that can make lobster taste bad! I would not recommend this dish. In fact, I would... More
